yarn advice -- cottolin
I am new to the forum and relatively new to weaving. I recently got a wolf pup loom and wanted to start my first project doing placemats. Last year I attended a class at Vavstuga Weaving School in Massachusetts (highly recommend if you're interested!) and we wove a twill towel out of Borgs 22/2 Cottolin on a countermarche loom and I loved the weight and hand of the towel. I bought some Borgs 22/2 cottolin from Yarn Barn online and started a sample warp using a 12 dent reed with 2 yarns per dent but the cloth just doesnt have the same hand as the towel woven at Vavstuga. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be? The cloth just feels much lighter and thinner. Could it be the sett, the yarn, or maybe the loom not being countermarche? Any ideas would be helpful!
Thanks so much!
